Book.Cover.HIGH.RES.HOTGIRL.jpg When I saw the cover for Dream Jordan’s Hot Girl, I couldn’t stop staring at it. It is so up-close and arresting–and I love her expression. So hard to figure out but so intriguing!
So, you know, I emailed Dream. And she told me this story:
“Originally, I envisioned my protagonist Kate dressed in sweats, sitting on a park bench with a basketball under her foot. I thought by depicting Kate as a tomboy, the reader would get a welcoming surprise when she’s made over into a HOT GIRL.
“My publisher didn’t ask for my input. In hindsight, I’m glad they didn’t because I love my cover! The only nitpick I had upon first seeing my cover was the character’s lips. I thought the lipstick was too shiny, and funny-looking. What I didn’t realize is that the computer image of my book cover was a less refined version of the actual hard copy. The hard copy is more than I could have imagined. I especially love my novel’s bind featuring those glossy lips, which ultimately entices a browsing bookstore patron to pick my book up!
“My cover’s reception has been phenomenal. Female readers love Kate’s perfectly arched brows, and the boys love that she’s pretty. Sometimes, I’m asked if I’m the female on the cover. I don’t see the resemblance, but I’m truly flattered and flabbergasted when that happens!”
I’ve seen Dream at a reading and she’s totally gorgeous, so I get why people ask her that! In any case, I really love this cover. What do you guys think?

    I picked up this book because of the cover, it is absolutely arresting! The model is so gorgeous (as is Dream). Thanks for this cover story. Yet another cover that will sell well/attract interest and I think it defies the whole whitewashing BS.
    I liked Hot Girl and I need to re-read it and review it on my blog :)
